Clove

Product Overview

Because of its anti-septic abilities, Clove is a dentist’s favourite. Clove oil is even now used by many dentists to disinfect root canals and is in numerous mouth washes. Even members of the Chinese Han Dynasty in 300BC used Cloves to freshen their breath. This aromatic dried flower bud has certainly been in demand throughout history and at one point was trading at a similar level to oil.
